Does a sea sponge cell transfer nutrients or energy to their neighboring cells or is their only symbiotic relationship that they are connected to each other forming a structure?

The sea sponges that I'm talking about are the ones that can be broken apart and naturally reassemble themselves.

yes choanocytes handle the bulk of sponges digestion and transfer nutrients to other cells. in some species Amebocytes also perform a similar function.
